Introduction

Osteoporosis is a bone disease where bones are presented with an increased risk of fracture, as they have very low bone mineral density and become very brittle. Bone architecture deteriorates over time in osteoporosis, and presents a great risk to those who suffer from it for increased bone breaks, and other physical problems relating to their medical condition.

Osteoporosis is most common in post-menopausal women, and is also very common among senior citizens and those who are older, or who are not as healthy leading to bone issues. People who maintain a high degree of personal health and exercise regularly, eat healthy, and life a quality lifestyle can lessen their risk of osteoporosis.

Causes

The causes of osteoporosis are often both chronic and genetic, with it arising often in senior citizens whose bones break down over time and through use and lifestyle habits. Osteoporosis typically involves fragility fractures, where bones break due to their brittle nature and poor care.

Causes are not as well known specifically, though a big aspect of osteoporosis is age; senior citizens and those who are older are more likely to be affected, as stated above. Additionally, poor lifestyle choices including diet, exercise, and nutrition can affect and quicken osteoporosis, and hasten some of the symptoms and issues related to the disorder as it presents itself in patients.

Symptoms

Osteoporosis has no significant symptoms of its own in the sense of it being a disorder with signs; instead, its main result is the greater risk of bone fractures and bone density issues leading to bone breaks and brittle bodies in patients. Typically, a sign of osteoporosis is the breaking of a bone that would not normally break or crack due to an acute issue or use; this is why it typically occurs in senior citizens who break bones in seemingly minor and simple ways.

Patients are advised to remain active and eat a healthy, balanced diet full of vitamins and minerals to keep bone mineral density high, and to avoid the issues of osteoporosis during the aging process. Multivitamins are also critical to help stop osteoporosis and help patients deal with brittle and breakable bones.

People suffering from osteoporosis can live normal, full lives with the disorder, if only being more careful of their surroundings and understanding their inherent risk of bone breaks and fractures, and slightly adjusting their daily lives accordingly. Medical doctors can hasten this quality of life improvement with vitamin and nutrition recommendations, and lifestyle change guidance.
